Youth and Young Women

YWCA Halifax’s Youth Programs are dynamic, community-responsive, and incorporate best practices in program delivery and community development. Our free-of-charge programs are facilitated throughout the HRM and specifically target the needs of youth who identify as young women ages 12-15 who are facing multiple barriers. YWCA Halifax Youth Programs served over 267 young women in 2014 thanks to the generous support from the Halifax Youth Foundation, the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness, and the United Way of Halifax Region.
